The Members of the City Council


The Citizens of the City of Danbury

I am pleased to present the proposed budget for the fiscal year commencing July 1, 2011 and ending on June 30, 2012.

INTRODUCTION

Once again, the citizens of Danbury can take pride in our City’s accomplishments and remain confident that the future of our City is bright. Danbury
is recognized throughout the country as a City on the rise. As in the past, Danbury’s success is attributable to a number of factors, but ultimately
what sustains our success is the quality of life we enjoy in our City.

Quality of life translates to providing a first rate educational system for our students; providing comprehensive recreational opportunities to our
citizens; and promoting a vibrant and exciting cultural life in our community.

To enhance this, Danbury has been recognized, for the third year in a row, as the safest large city in Connecticut by the annual CQ Press survey of
major U.S. Cities. We are ranked the 4h safest in all of New England and 57th in the nation. And, while unemployment has trended higher, the
Danbury area remains the lowest in the state at 8.0%. Our sewer and water rates continue to remain among the lowest in Connecticut. We were
again rated by Connecticut Magazine as one of the top cities to live in - improving in every category measured in the study.

Preserving a superior quality of life that we are fortunate enough to enjoy here in Danbury doesn't come easily nor should it ever waiver, especially
during difficult economic times. We are reminded each time we pass through many of our once great neighboring communities throughout New
England who waivered at a time when they needed to stand firm to protect and preserve their quality of life. Preserving Danbury’s quality of life means
continuing to invest in and properly maintain: (1) the City’s infrastructure -- with ongoing drainage, sidewalk, and road improvement projects; (2) our
school buildings – by investing in energy efficiency projects to reduce long-term costs and replacing roofs and making repairs as needed; (3) our
transportation network; and (4) recreational facilities. Yet, such infrastructure investments must be done within a framework that does not create an
undue burden on our taxpayers.

The initial 2011-2012 budget requests from all general fund departments totaled $222.9 million, which is an increase of $13.6 million from the
2010-2011 Adopted Budget: $118.1 million from the Board of Education ($4.2 million increase from 2010-2011 Adopted Budget); and $104.8 from City
Departments ($9.4 million increase from 2010-2011 Adopted Budget). However, of the $9.4 million requested increase from the City, only $2.4 million
was from the individual departments. The additional $7 million is for increased expenditures relating to pensions, employee benefits, debt service and
capital requests. The department’s requests represented a 4.6% increase for their FY 2010-2011 adopted budgets; however, FY 2011-2012 proposes
to eliminate 12 vacant positions and cut departmental spending by just over $200,000 or 0.5%.

The overall $6.67 million increase in expenditures is confined almost exclusively within these elements: Pension costs ($2.4 million); Schools ($1.0
million); Insurances ($0.4 million); and Debt Service ($3.1million). The cost increases associated with other expense items have been offset by cost
savings or usage reduction through efficiencies thus enabling the city to do more with less.

The proposed FY 2011-2012 Capital Budget includes borrowing of $3.0 million for the following projects which have been deemed necessary at this
time: School repairs and artificial turf replacement ($1.0 million) Highway Street/Drainage Improvements and Equipment ($1.0 million); 2012
Revaluation ($0.5 million) and replace underground storage tanks ($0.5 million). Other Capital items funded directly through the general fund include,
without the use of borrowing: Purchase and Outfitting of Patrol and Detective Vehicles ($0.25 million); Purchase/Lease Agreement for energy efficient
projects including boilers at BOE ($0.5 million); Purchase/Lease Agreement for Fire Apparatus – 2 Pumpers ($0.15 million); Purchase Fire Apparatus –
Airpacs ($0.1 million); and replace septic system at airport and environmental testing as mandated ($0.1 million). In previous budgets, some of these
non-routine types of capital items may have been funded through borrowing and not funded directly in the general fund or may have been funded within
the individual department line.Cost savings and cost avoidance strategies, which have been used during the past three budgets, will be continued for
the FY 2011-2012 Proposed Operating Budget. Specifically, the City has eliminated 12 vacated positions and continues to defer filling another 34
positions thus saving $2.0 million in the current budget; many of these positions will remain unfunded in the adopted FY 2011-2012 budget. I have
continued to defer all hiring unless there is a significant overtime cost impact on our budget. Additionally, the inventory of all City assets is being
evaluated to determine its role in Danbury’s future and, if necessary, to strategically sell unneeded and idle assets. For example, the “old police station”
located at 120 Main Street will be sold next month and will net additional revenues to the City of approximately $2.3 million in FY 2010-2011. The 2011-
2012 Proposed Budget has anticipated the sale of 13 acres from the “Reserve”, which has been appraised for more than $4.0 million, but I have
conservatively budgeted estimated revenues of $2.9 million. Although these “one-time” revenues are budgeted, the City’s conservative budgetary
practice has always been to make certain offset provisions exist within the budget so as not to be excessively dependent on these “one-time” revenues
when such items are occasionally included within a budget. The offset provisions may be included within the expenditures, other revenues and/or
through strategic management of the balance sheet. The underlining goal pertaining to this strategy is to provide financial mobility and stability for the
City while focusing on minimizing the tax burden on the property owners.

The citizens of Danbury have been incredibly supportive as we engaged in ongoing initiatives to control costs. We remain well positioned to weather
the lingering economic challenges, and we will be an even leaner and more efficient organization after the implementation of the FY 2011-2012
Proposed Operating Budget.

CITYWIDE MISSION AND POLICY OBJECTIVES

Statement of Mission
The City of Danbury’s mission is to ensure a superior quality of life for its citizens by providing the most cost effective municipal services
while preserving the cultural, historical and natural resources of the City. We are committed to working with citizens to enhance Danbury’s
position as a premier place to live, work and raise a family in a traditional yet progressive community.

Each year, department heads are instructed to review their individual department mission to ensure that the essence of the citywide mission statement
is an integral component of the budget development process. This year, they were asked to reflect their mission statements and goals in context of
these difficult economic times and to focus on the most cost effective and efficient means of delivery of services while maintaining the highest level of
commitment in meeting our citizens’ needs. Specifically, departments were asked to evaluate the effectiveness of their programs and processes to
gauge the level of success and to offer “out of the box” solutions or alternatives.

The Department of Finance Budget Team was instructed to cross analyze every budgetary line item by department, division, and citywide to search for
additional opportunities for budgetary reductions, containment and to squeeze out any remaining unnecessary excess from the budget to minimize the
taxpayers’ burden. The Finance Department continues to regularly meet with department heads and key personnel to discuss targeted cost saving
opportunities. Several other cost saving or cost avoidance initiatives include: evaluating the employee use of city vehicles, switching City’s
phonesystem to VoIP is being considered, and researching the possible use of CNG (compressed natural gas) while being a local provider. Continuous
cost reduction and containment will require the implementation of “best practices’ and modernizing the work flows and processes with new software and
hardware. However, the costs of the new systems will supplant the costs of the old system with minimal impact to the IT budget but tremendous value
will be added across the City organization in improved efficiency, reduced handling, less paper, and reduced “lost time”. The city is also forming
strategic alliances and partnerships with other communities and businesses in our efforts to reduce and contain costs or improve services when in the
City’s interests to do so. The departments continue to exceed expectations by tightly managing their budgets, working together to lower costs, and
taking the initiative to seek out saving opportunities
.

Finding more efficient ways to run government is no longer a nice “catch phrase,” it remains a necessity in how we conduct our business. I am proud and
grateful that my dedicated department heads have answered and continue to answer that call for doing “more with less” now for the fourth consecutive
year. Each department’s mission incorporates the administration’s goal of providing high-quality, cost-effective municipal services while educating
residents about the programs and services being offered by the City of Danbury. The budget for FY 2011-2012 continues this commitment with additional
performance measurements in the City’s budget presentation.

Public Safety

The FY 2011-2012 budget continues our commitment to public safety. The FY 2011-2012 Proposed Budget is about $0.1 million more than the FY 2010-
2011 Adopted Budget. The public safety capital purchases of $505,000 separately listed in the 2011-2012 Proposed Budget include: $249,180
Patrol/Detective Vehicle Replacement Program; $100,000 AirPac Replacement Program; and $155,820 lease (annually, for seven years) of two pumpers
purchased last year.

Although the financial impact has not been considered in the FY 2011-2012 Proposed Budget, I am pleased and excited to report an initiative to form
alliances with Northwest communications and with neighboring communities to create a Regional Dispatch Center at the new Police Station headquarters.
It will be the first true regional dispatch center in the State of Connecticut and will serve as a model program in dispatching the fire, police and emergency
(ambulance) service calls throughout the region. Ongoing funding and reimbursements funding for transition will be available from the State. An innovative
idea and solution like this helps Danbury stay on the top by leading us forward into a safer and more affordable future. Stay tuned in as more great ideas
are rolled out and watch as those ideas are turned into real results and benefits for all Danbury taxpayers and residents.

Education

Fostering a first rate education system is a key component to ensuring that Danbury is a premier place to raise a family, and requires a financial
commitment that takes many forms. Studies have shown that a more comfortable physical environment is a more conducive environment for learning.
This year, the City will be investing in improving the physical building at the Board of Education while keeping energy efficiency also in the forefront. By
doing so, our objective is to stabilize our operating costs, specifically energy costs, more stable in the future. Funding the school system at reasonable
levels allows the district to achieve its educational goals for students. I am proud of the accomplishments of our school system and am confident that the
budget increases over the last eight years have contributed to its success. Over these years, spending on education has increased by $33.2 million or
40.6%. The Board of Education budget will increase by $1.0 million to $114.9 million in FY 2011-2012.

The capital budget includes the annual funding for the purchase/lease amount of $500,000 for an energy efficiency project at the Danbury Schools, which
includes the replacement of boilers. The capital budget also includes a borrowing of $0.6 million for replacement of the artificial turf at DHS Cotty Field, and
$0.4 million for repairs at the Alternative School.

Livable Neighborhoods & Cultural Resources

The UNIT responds to quality of life complaints through enforcement and education. Enforcement actions and remediation are published on the City’s
website. Additionally, residents are educated on the City’s zoning regulations and new property owners receive a welcome packet describing the “Do’s and
Don’ts” of living in our City.

A couple of years ago, I expanded and reorganized the UNIT. This strategy has proven to be highly effective and efficient by all measures. The Unit Team
has addressed 1,289 calls or issues, again having a significant impact on resolving quality of life complaints from our citizens. CityLine 311, a part of our
UNIT operation, fielded and responded to approximately 9,000 calls last year.

Community Services

The Community Services section is now in its third year. The Community Services FY 2011-2012 Budget totals $456,275, representing a 10% reduction
from a year ago. It includes the following: Danbury Downtown Council/CityCenter Danbury ($33,050), Volunteer Center ($6,075), and the United Way of
Western Connecticut ($417,150). Most grant agencies that have received direct funding from the City in the past must now apply for funds through the
United Way. To ensure that the limited amount of funds are effectively utilized and for its intended purposes, we partnered with the United Way of Western
Connecticut. The United Way established a committee of community volunteers to interview applicant agencies, review the applications, and determine if
the agency is within the goals of the City.

With these funds, United Way, distributed money to 25 city agencies that, in turn, helped 22,945 residents. The program has been successful and will go
forward without format change.

The United Way’s Mission Statement has identified the following essential components for a community which helps create opportunities and advance the
common good for local communities: Economics, Health, and Education.

Once again, certain agencies that were previously funded in the grant sections will now be funded, although reduced in some cases, through the department
that provides the most similar function: Danbury Animal Welfare Society, Inc. - the Animal Fund; The War Memorial provides on-call citywide emergency
shelter - Civil Preparedness; Women’s Center, Danbury Youth Services and CT Institute for Communities - Health and Human Services Department;
Council of Veterans - Veterans Department; and the YMCA - the Department of Recreation.
ECONOMIC CONSIDERATIONS & FINANCIAL POLICIES

There are economic considerations and financial policies that are key drivers for the City of Danbury and the development of the budget. These factors
include the City’s grand list of taxable properties and the reliance on the property tax to finance city government, overall economic conditions in the City,
and financial policies concerning undesignated fund balance and debt management.

Property Taxes & Grand List Growth

For FY 2011-2012, property taxes will account for 78.3% of total revenue for the City. This is higher than before the recession began a few years ago but
slightly down from last year. The FY 2011-2012 Proposed Budget includes increases in other revenues such as: intergovernmental (State Aid) ($0.6
million), licenses & permits ($1.1 million) ,and charges for services ($0.5million). The FY 2011-2012 Adopted Budget reduces the fund balance
appropriation to $2.4 million to ensure the city maintains the targeted goal of 10% unreserved fund balance. The revenue (cuts/additions) proposed in the
governor’s budget have been utilized and will have a net impact to intergovernmental revenues and conveyance tax (Licenses and Permits) of $0.1 million
and $0.7 million, respectively. Additionally, the FY 2011-20123 Proposed Budget reduces “other revenues” which have been dropping significantly since
the beginning of the recession but appears to have leveled off. Meanwhile, the City continually seeks opportunities to identify additional sources of new
revenue and to reduce costs in order to return to the normal percentage levels of property taxes as a percentage of general fund revenue. The extent to
which property taxes make up total revenues will fluctuate depending on the composition of those non-property tax revenues and the costs necessary to
provide services. In recent years, State aid and other revenues have decreased while the City’s costs have continued to go up for pension costs, Board of
Education, health insurances, and other capital needs. The FY 2011-2012 Budget proposes funding increases for the BOE, Public Safety, and Health and
Welfare of $1.0 million, $118,000 and $89,000 for total budgets of $114.9 million, $27.9 million and $1.4 million respectively. The Public Works Budget was
flat funded at $9.3 million while all other General Fund Operating Divisions have had their budgets reduced by 2.5% or $391,000.

The grand list of taxable properties includes residential real estate, commercial and industrial real estate, motor vehicles and business personal
property. The property revaluation of October 2007 resulted in a significant inflation in property values that would have increased the tax burden
beyond reasonable levels. Implementing the revaluation in a single year would have resulted in a dramatic tax burden; thus, we implemented a
phase-in of the revaluation to reduce the impact on property owners. Normally, this strategy allows the City to raise additional tax revenues and
minimize the effects each year of the revaluation as the tax base grows while stabilizing tax rates. However, the economic recession, credit crunch
and housing market crisis has flat lined our tax base as compared to last year. Any continuation of a phase-in would have caused a sudden and
substantial tax increase to the City residents without producing any additional property tax revenue in a time when such an increase could not be
afforded by the taxpayers. Many cities throughout Connecticut faced the same issue, and as a result,, the Connecticut State Legislature two years
ago passed SB 997 – An Act Concerning a Municipal Option to Delay Revaluations. Like many other Connecticut cities, Danbury opted to delay the
second year of the phase last year. However, the SB 997 Act allows only a delay of the implementation for up to two years not to abandon the
phase in. Consequently, as per state requirements, the City continued to phase-in the revaluation last year, but delayed the phase-in this year.
However, to ease the burden of increasing property taxes resulting from the phase-in for senior citizen property owners on limited fixed incomes, I
introduced legislation, which was adopted by the City Council, for income qualified senior citizen property owners to freeze their taxes at the current
levels. This proposed legislation has a sunset provision of the next revaluation in 2012.

Clearly, the City of Danbury has not been isolated to the impact of the nationwide recession. Although the total dollar values and the number of
permits are the lowest in several years, it is important to note that the residential market seems to have hit bottom and is beginning to recover while
the commercial market and the industrial market seem to be recovering. Most of the revenues for building permits, fees and revenues associated
with real estate transactions, such as conveyance tax, have been adjusted in the FY 11-12 Proposed Budget to reflect current year activity trends
with the Governor’s proposed amendments to the conveyance tax.

Fund Balance

The City’s policy is to maintain a General Fund undesignated fund balance of between 5% and 10% of General Fund expenditures. While the City
believes it is important to maintain reserves at reasonable levels, accumulating an excessive fund balance is not good public policy. If fund balance
as a percentage of General Fund expenditures exceeds the target of 10%, a portion of that should be returned to the taxpayers in the form of a
reduced mill rate. The City’s undesignated fund balance totaled a healthy amount of 10.2% of General Fund Expenditures or $21,250,848 for FY
ended June 30, 2010. The budget for FY 2011-2012 incorporated a planned use of fund balance of $2.4 million, bringing the percentage of
undesignated fund balance to 9.0%, well within the City’s target of 5% to 10%.

When the City’s policy regarding undesignated fund balance is compared with other communities in Connecticut, we are similarly positioned with
municipalities with higher credit ratings than our own. A comparison with triple AAA rated communities in the State of Connecticut supports the
City’s policy of an undesignated fund balance of 5% to 10% of General Fund expenditures, and reinforces our position that returning excess fund
balance back to the taxpayers in the form of lower taxes is good public policy.
I am very proud to report that Standard & Poor’s, the largest of the three major rating agencies, upgraded the rating for the City of Danbury, last year,
which will lower the net interest cost for future debt issuances resulting in savings of future tax dollars. Standard & Poor’s states that the ratings
reflect the City’s:
x Strong and diverse economy located in Fairfield County, featuring extremely strong per capita market value and high per capita
retail sales;
x Income levels above national averages;
x Sound financial operations and conservative management practices; and
x Moderate debt burden, coupled with a manageable capital improvement plan (CIP)

Capital Financing and Debt Management

In recent years, the City of Danbury has received approval from the voters for an aggressive capital improvement program geared toward upgrading
the City’s infrastructure and to position our City for the 21st Century. In 2004, the voters approved the 21st Century Bond package, the focus of which
was to rebuild our schools. In 2005, the voters approved the Danbury Neighborhood Bond, which upgraded our parks and playgrounds and provides
our citizens with additional recreational opportunities. In May 2006, the voters approved another bond proposal, the Danbury Public Safety Bond.
This bond provided the necessary funding to construct a state-of-the-art police headquarters. In 2007, the voters approved the Open Space Bond to
provide funding for such initiatives as: to preserve open space; additional public improvement projects including parks/streetscape enhancements
and to purchase capital equipment; and a fire sprinkler system at Danbury High School.

In proposing these capital project investments, the City does so within a framework of capital financing policies designed to ensure that the debt
associated with these projects does not place undue pressure on the mill rate and our taxpayers. The City’s capital financing policies were
developed using guidelines and best practices. The City’s current capital policy standards are:

11  
12  

x Debt service as a percent of expenditures should not exceed 10%.


x Debt per capita should not exceed $1,900 and increase at 3% per year.
x Debt as a percentage of fair market value shall not exceed 1.5%.

It is anticipated that the debt associated with all of these projects will be issued by FY 2011-2012. During that time, the debt ratios described above
are as follows:

x Debt Service as a percentage of general fund expenditures will peak at 8.0% in FY 2012-2013 and declines to 5.5% by FY 2018-2019. This
is well within the cap of 10% outlined in the policy.

The City will continue to increase its outstanding debt over the next year to adequately finance remaining projects approved from previous bond
issues. Outstanding debt is projected to peak in FY 2011-2012 at $140.5 million when all of the debt has been issued and will decline to $61.1
million in FY 2019-2020 as the debt is paid down. The following table illustrates the projected outstanding debt and its impact on debt service as a
percentage of expenditures, debt per capita, and debt to fair market value.

The City continually evaluates the validity of its capital financing policy by comparing our debt ratio benchmarks with those of other cities and towns.
It is evaluated against triple AAA communities in the State of Connecticut as well as the surrounding communities in western Connecticut. Using
those comparisons, the City of Danbury can determine whether its debt capacity is within the guidelines that evaluate the overall financial condition
of the City. Based on the following table, the City of Danbury is well positioned and can easily take on the debt associated with its aggressive capital
improvement program.

SUMMARY OF THE PROPOSED OPERATING BUDGET

The total general fund spending plan for FY 2011-2012, including the Board of Education, is $215,919,397. This represents an increase of $6.67
million over the current year adopted budget of $209,248,000. Spending by the Board of Education will increase by $1.0 million. Net revenue from
all sources other than current property taxes total $46,748153, leaving a net balance expected to be raised from local taxes of $169,171,244 (after
considering a $1.0 million allowance for uncollectable taxes/tax appeal adjustments). Based on an assumed grand list of $7.85 billion after
considering Board of Assessment Appeals, the mill rate needed to support the proposed budget is 21.69 mills. This represents an increase in the mill
rate of .73 mills, or 3.49%.

On the City side of the FY 11-12 Proposed Operating Budget, overall spending will increase by $5.7 million due primarily to non department specific
expenditures such as: $2.4 million increase in required annual contributions to the Employee Pension Plans, $0.4 million increase in overall
employee benefits and $3.1 million increase in debt service. The net departmental budget for FY 11-12 will be less by almost $200,000.
Departments will be required to absorb any cost increases and seek out the most efficient and effective measures for delivery of services.

BUDGET ASSUMPTIONS

Revenues:

x Since the beginning of the recession, tax collections percentages have been closely monitored and all necessary actions have been taken to
ensure that tax revenue projections are achieved such as: selling current year tax liens, selling older inactive accounts (liens), hiring a new
collection agency and instituting a “boot” program for unpaid/unregistered vehicles. For the current year, such measures have generated an
additional $1.0 million to tax revenues to help offset potential declines in revenues due to the negative impact of uncollectable tax receivables/tax
appeals. However, conservative fiscal practices require that I recommend $1,000,000 as an allowance for uncollectable taxes and the negative
impact of tax appeals on revenues.

x The budget assumes that State aid will increase by $0.1 million from current levels.

x The FY 11-12 Proposed Budget assumes revenue of $2.9 million generated from the sale of city assets.

x The use of appropriated Fund Balance will be reduced from $2.5 million in the FY 10-11 Adopted Budget to $2.4 million in the FY 11-12
Proposed Budget.

x The current level of undesignated fund balance is $21.25 million or 10.2% of this year’s budget. This amount is exclusive of the $2.5 million that
has been designated for FY 2010-2011 Adopted Budget.

The future revenue challenges continue to be: the uncertainty of the financial situation at the state and their ability to maintain their commitment level
of funding at the budgeted amounts; the ongoing recession and its impact the City’s tax collection rates and “other revenues”; and the timing of the
State mandated 2012 revaluation and the impact to the grand list.

Expenditures:

Funding for most departments has been cut or flat or received only the necessary increases to enable them to meet their core mission. In fact, many
departments absorbed the contractual salary and cost increases while continuing to provide the same high level of service.

16  

x After several years of decreasing annual required contributions (ARC) to the Employee Pension Plans, the ARC amount increased by $2.4 as a
result of the 2008 Wall Street melt down; $1.1 million of this amount are contributions on behalf of Board of Education employees.

x Although our health insurance renewal rates were relatively low (1%), an additional $0.4 million in overall employee benefits is still required
specifically for current and retiree health insurance, prescription plans, worker’s compensation, and other insurances.

x Reflected in the FY 10-11 Adopted Budget general fund debt service was $1.4 million one-time savings from the bond refunding of nearly $38
million, which generated a total of $1.8 million in overall total present value savings. However, that annualized payment in addition to a new debt
payment from our more recent debt issue will be accounted for in the FY 11-12 Proposed Budget as a $3.1 million increase over last year.

x Additionally, as a budgetary control measure, the funding of 12 vacant positions has been defunded and eliminated from the departments saving
approximately $1 million. Less than half of the 34 vacant positions will be funded in the Employee Service Benefit lines in the FY 2011-2012
Proposed Budget with the highest priority given to Public Safety positions and those positions which can only be cost justified.

x The non-routine capital goods or services purchased (including lease/purchase agreements) directly from the General Fund appropriations have
been separated to highlight these important projects and also to smooth out the year-to-year trends in the departments for comparative
purposes.

x The budget includes a contingency of $450,000 for unanticipated expenses throughout the year.

The expenditure pressures and challenges to future budgets will be from the following: increased annual required contributions (ARC) into
employees pension plans due to the Wall Street crash of 2008; increasing costs for health and prescription coverage insurances for current and
retired employees and the unknown financial impact resulting from negotiations with all unions for new contracts, which will expire on 6/30/2011.

BUDGET OVERVIEW AND MAJOR INITIATIVES

GENERAL FUND

General Government

x The FY 2011-2012 Proposed Budget is $160,434 less than last year’s adopted budget for General Government.
x The hiring freeze, which I instituted three years ago, remains in effect on all non-essential positions and resulted in 2 positions remaining open
for most of the year in General Government after permanently cutting 2.5 positions. This cost control measure saved approximately $150,000
for this fiscal year for general government support.

x Capital funding of $500,000 has been included for the Buildings Department purposes to replace underground storage tanks (UST) at City Hall,
Fire Department headquarters and the Airport, as required by CTDEP.

x Additional capital borrowing of $500,000 is being proposed to permit the Assessor’s Office to begin the state mandated revaluation process of
the 2012 revaluation. Danbury’s last revaluation was effective October 1, 2007 and the state requires that such revaluations be completed every
five years.

Public Safety

x The FY 2011-2012 Proposed Budget for Public Safety is $117,914 more that the FY 2010-2011 Adopted Budget.

x The FY 11-12 Proposed Budget includes additional funding for overtime ($120,000) and other contractual increases.

x Capital funding of $249,180 is provided to purchase and outfit police cruisers and detective vehicles.

x Capital funding of $100,000 has been provided to fund the lease/purchase of fire safety apparatus (Air Pacs) and capital funding of $155,820
was included to fund the annual purchase lease agreement for 2 new replacement pumpers for the Fire Department.

x Onc vacant position has been cut in the UNIT, thus saving approximately $75,000.

As was the case in the FY 2010-2011 Adopted Budget, the FY 11-12 Proposed Budget does not include a general fund subsidy to the Ambulance
Fund. In fact, the Ambulance Fund has been self sustaining for the last several years.

17  
18  

Public Works

x The FY 2011-2012 Proposed Budget for Public Works remains at the same level as the FY 2010-2011 Adopted Budget.

x Three vacant positions have been cut – one each in Highway, Parks Maintenance and Engineering, resulting in approximately $200,000 in
savings. The three remaining vacant positions, which were left unfilled for most of the year due to the hiring freeze, resulted in approximately
$150,000 in savings for the current year.

x The departmental reorganization completed a couple of years ago, which focused on using in-house talent instead of more costly consultants,
continues to pay dividends as evident during our budget preparation as the Public Works Division becomes more efficient with “doing more with
less.”

Social Services Agencies

x The Community Services section is now in its third year. This replaces the former “grants” section. The Community Services FY 2011-2012
Budget totals $456,275, representing a 10% reduction from a year ago. It includes the following: Danbury Downtown Council/CityCenter
Danbury ($33,050), Volunteer Center ($6,075), and the United Way of Western Connecticut ($417,150). Most grant agencies that have received
direct funding from the City in the past must now apply for funds through the United Way. To ensure that the limited amount of funds are
effectively utilized and for its intended purposes, we partnered with the United Way of Western Connecticut. The United Way established a
committee of community volunteers to interview applicant agencies, review the applications, and determine if the agency is within the goals of
the City.

Education

x The FY 11-12 Proposed Budget will include an appropriation for the Board of Education of $114,895,291 million, an increase of $1.0 million from
the FY 2010-2011 Adopted Budget. The Board of Education had requested $118.1 million, an increase of $4.2 million. I realize that this will not
be an easily achievable goal to close the funding gap especially after being flat funded last year. Nevertheless, the standard will continue to be
set high for the Board of Education to partner with the City to slow the spending growth trend to levels the community can afford. I firmly believe
that by continuing to work together, the City and BOE staff can reduce, if not eliminate, the gap through various cost cutting measures,
maximizing efficiencies and revenues.
Libraries

x Funding to the Danbury Public Library decreased by nearly $93,300 for FY 2011-12 primarily due to the elimination of two full time vacant
positions.

Culture/Recreation

x The Department of Recreation FY 2011-2012 Budget is lower by $24,000 mostly due to the reduction of funding in overtime/part-time salaries
and outside services. Funding for most of the Authorities and Commissions have been reduced by 10%.

Recurring Costs

x The City’s contribution to the pension fund is budgeted at $7,677,000, an increase of $2,398,000.

Debt Service

x The FY 11-12 Proposed Budget for Debt Service is $16,647,650, an increase of $3,054,343. The City’s ongoing capital improvement program
will continue to drive debt service expenditures.

Capital Plan

x The FY 11-12 Proposed Budget Capital Plan totals $1,100,000. Capital items funded without the use of borrowing and funded directly through
the general fund include: Purchase and Outfitting of Patrol and Detective Vehicles ($0.25 million); Purchase/Lease Agreement for School
energy efficiency projects, including Boilers at Danbury High School, Broadview, King Street and Stadley Rough Elementary School ($0.5
million); Purchase/Lease Agreement for Fire Apparatus – 2 Pumpers ($0.15 million); Purchase Fire Apparatus – Airpacs ($0.1 million); and
Replace Underground Storage Tanks per CTDEPT order at FD, City Hall and Airport ($0.08 million), septic system at Airport and conduct
environmental study at Roberts Avenue School as mandated ($0.1 million).

x The proposed FY 2011-2012 Capital Budget includes borrowing of $3.0 million for the following projects which have been deemed necessary at
this time: Turf replacement at DHS and school repairs ($1.0 million) replacement of underground storage tanks as required by CT DEP ($0.5),
Highway Street/Drainage/Bridge/Intersection Improvements and Equipment ($1.0 million); and 2012 Revaluation ($0.5 million).

19  
20  

Contingency

The Proposed Operating Budget includes a contingency totaling $450,000 for unanticipated expenses throughout the year

SEWER AND WATER FUNDS

x Expenses in the Sewer Fund for FY 2011-2012 are expected to be $10.75 million, a decrease of $264,620, or -2.4%. The service contract with
Veolia, which increases annually based upon an index, is expected to increase by $137,155. Debt service will also increase by nearly $486,000.
A decrease of $1,015,000 in the state mandated purchase of nitrogen credits will allow the Sewer Fund to absorb other expenditure increases
while keeping the usage rates flat for the upcoming year.

x Expenses in the Water Fund for FY 2011-2012 are expected to be $7.9 million, a decrease of $272,311, or -3.3%. Much like the General Fund,
most expenditures lines have been held to flat or slight decrease to offset any other increases such as debt, +57,225, and payment in lieu of
taxes, +13,000. In addition, two vacant positions have been eliminated and defunded for FY 2011-2012. This conservative approach will allow
the usage rates to remain flat for the upcoming year.
CONCLUSION

The FY 11-12 Proposed Operating Budget has been the most challenging budget I have ever presented in my tenure as your Mayor. Many difficult
choices and sacrifices have been made and will continue to be made by all City departments in order to present a balanced plan of operations
designed to continue essential municipal services and selected quality of life initiatives most needed in the City’s neighborhoods. The finances for
the City of Danbury remain strong because of the sacrifices we are willing to make. The FY 11-12 Proposed Budget plan includes only what is
needed to preserve Danbury’s quality of life and nothing more. I have proposed a finely tuned plan which meets the City’s service needs, reorders
our priorities where appropriate, and challenges all of our employees to deliver public services more efficiently. Moreover, the plan places the
minimum burden possible on our taxpayers consistent with sound financial practices. Most assuredly, this economic crisis will eventually pass, but I
firmly believe that Danbury will emerge leaner, wiser, and stronger as a community because of what we have shared together.

I appreciate the incredible efforts by my staff to control costs and recognize that they have been feeling the squeeze of the budgetary pressures of
doing more with less but oftentimes a lack of money arouses creativity and can foster positive and productive partnerships which may never typically
be considered under normal circumstances. I maintain that this is the time to remain vigilant in our fiscal restraint, and I view these times as a
tremendous opportunity for all of us, especially in government, to think “outside the box” to find extraordinary solutions to deal with extraordinary
problems and situations without adding any more burden than absolutely necessary to the taxpayer who is already struggling during this economic

PEFORMANCE MEASUREMENT

The City of Danbury’s mission is to ensure a superior quality of life for its citizens by providing the most cost effective municipal services while preserving
the cultural, historical and natural resources of the City. We are committed to working with citizens to enhance Danbury’s position as a premier place to
live, work and raise a family in a traditional yet progressive community.

The City of Danbury began using performance measurements as a strategy to sustain our service levels, strive for excellence, and continue improvement
of meeting the City’s mission statement. Implementing performance measurement is a process which has evolved over several years. The City of
Danbury began with the introduction of the “Statement of Mission, Accomplishments and Major Objectives” in the 2004-2005 budget. For the 2007-2008
budget, department heads were asked to provide a logic model for one program or service within their department. A logic model is a learning and
improvement tool that will help managers to focus on what they want to accomplish and how they will reach their goals. For the 2008-2009 budget, key
performance measures were provided for major departments. The 2011-2012 budget expands on these performance measures along with measurable
goals for the current fiscal year.

These performance measures provide a road map of the annual expectations for each department. Performance measures provide key decision-making
information for resource allocation, process improvements and other management decisions. They also provide the City Council with comprehensive
data on each department's primary operating functions. Through the use of performance measures, citizens can understand “what they get” in terms of
service and results.

Performance Measurements will be used as a long term comprehensive program that will lead to better management of the City’s resources, more
accountability, more productivity, and specific goal setting.

UNITED WAY OF WESTERN CONNECTICUT, INC.*

This was the second year that the City of Danbury and UWWC worked together in this unique collaborative arrangement. The City determined how many dollars
would be allocated to each service area in advance of distributing the funds to organizations. Education received $112,500, Health received $157,000 and
Income received $180,000. Due to the continuing difficult economic climate in our country, the majority of available funds were put into the Income category. The
Income category represented programs that support City residents’ efforts to achieve financial self-sufficiency and meet their basic economic needs.

As administrator of the grant process, UWWC recruited and trained 27 City residents to serve as volunteers to review the grant applications and make
recommendations to the City on the appropriate distribution of the funds. Volunteer reviewers were only eligible if they were a Danbury resident and attested to
having no conflicts of interest with the agencies being reviewed. The volunteers spent several weeks reading agency proposals, listening to agency presentations
and, through considerable discussion and debate, arrived at a final funding recommendation, which the City approved.

Applications were evaluated using a scoring tool based on:


x Need for service in the community
x Organization’s effectiveness and capacity in delivering the services.
x Organization’s financial stability.
x Outcome measurements of its programs.

Volunteers generally rated highly those agencies that demonstrated very clear, focused missions and strong performance outcome measurements. Volunteers
considered agencies’ financial stability, as well as how the agency anticipated allocating (or had historically allocated) grant funds. They also examined the role of
the organizations’ board, including the longevity and level of involvement of board members.

Grants awarded for the 2010-2011 year covered three broad areas:

Education: It is important for Danbury’s children to be able to grow and succeed, and this includes ensuring that families have the skills and resources needed for
their children to succeed in school and life. Agencies funded helped improve parenting skills, provided after school care and advocated on behalf of children with
educational disabilities. Danbury invested $112,500 in five agencies this past grant cycle.

Health: Whether it is a sudden illness or ongoing prevention, health is important to Danbury residents. Poor health can affect our families and individuals socially,
emotionally and financially. Agencies funded with “Health” dollars provided a variety of services, including drug & alcohol rehabilitation, home health care, preventive
and emergency care for under or uninsured and care for the elderly or dying. Danbury invested $157,500 to support 11 agencies focusing on the health of Danbury
residents.

Income: A thriving community is a financially stable community. Whether it is job training, providing for emergency services such as utility payments, or helping
people transition from homelessness to stable housing, these agencies work to lift people out of poverty into a more sustainable environment. Danbury invested
$180,000 in nine agencies during 2010.

Danbury Children First - $21,381

TBICO - $12,149
Mission: To provide training and support to individuals to achieve economic self sufficiency so that they may forge positive changes in their lives. Services include
career counseling, adult basic skills education, occupational/vocational training, job readiness workshops, job search assistant, financial literacy education, and
employment related support services..

Accomplishments: The majority of services provided involved employment-related training since it is vital for unemployed people to get into training quickly, so their
skills don’t erode. Once people become unemployed for long periods of time, they start seeing a serious depreciation or reduction in their skill levels--in the human
capital that they carry. Enrolling in a training program such as TBICO’s not only gives an individual new skills, it gives them a new purpose and a sense of being in
control of their future. This is especially true of the long-term unemployed who recognize the importance of keeping their skills current and doing all they can to look
and feel job-ready when the openings do eventually come back. In addition, The CTWorks new location lacks sufficient space to host the Danbury Networking Job
Club, held bi-weekly and attended by at least thirty-five to fifty participants at every meeting. TBICO has offered to host the meetings at its new location on Eagle
Road. On February 1, 2011, TBICO moved to its new location at 22 Eagle Road in Danbury. This location will enable program expansion and will give TBICO
increased access to additional businesses and individuals who need and can benefit from TBICO’s services. Concurrent with the move to the new facility, TBICO will
introduce a fully revamped employment training curriculum that is updated and more closely aligned with the expectations of Danbury area employers. The
curriculum will expand opportunities for self-directed learning, as well as enhanced technology components, and additional opportunities to develop problem-solving
skills, all identified by employers as critical needs.

CITY OF DANBURY
ANNUAL OPERATING BUDGET PROCEDURES
BUDGET PROCESS

The City is required to present a balanced budget for each fund. The budget is balanced when budgeted revenues, plus appropriated fund balance and
transfers equal appropriations which must be itemized for each program and/or department within each fund.

The planned use of appropriated fund balance and transfers has historically been a strategic tool to balance the budget. Upon approval by the City Council,
appropriations for impromptu matters may come directly from fund balance, such as special litigation court settlements, asset purchases, significant non-
routine unplanned capital expenditures, etc. As a matter of practice, the City generally strives to absorb these impromptu matters into its current operating
budget whenever possible. Regardless of such unplanned financial expenses, the unappropriated fund balance has remained strong and steady at a level of
about 9% of the ensuing year’s budget – well within the City’s goal of 5-10%.

Pursuing the fairest and most appropriate method for revenue enhancement has always been a challenge during any budget process. The City continues to
review its rates and fee structure. Distinguishing between basic community services which may already be included in a citizen’s tax bill and those which may
require a higher level of service and subject to a fee based charge continues to be open for discussion and may offer additional revenue opportunities. We
remain focused on protecting the interests of tax “payers” by aggressively defending the grand list and vigorously pursuing delinquent receivables of all types,
i.e. tax, special services, utility, etc. The City will continue to review all assets to ensure that they are “active” and will sell, dispose, or donate inactive assets.
In a sense, we are “spring cleaning” throughout the entire year. Such strategies have helped close the past revenue/expenditure gap for the in prior fiscal
years and will continue to strengthen the City’s financial position in this fiscal year and into the next. As a conservative budgetary practice, certain offset
provisions have been considered so as not to be excessively dependent on these “one-time” revenues when included within a budget. The offset provisions
may be included within the expenditures, other revenues and/or through strategic management of the balance sheet. With so many uncertainties facing our
nation and the City for the next few years, it is vitally important that we remain prepared for the unpredictable fluctuations which may occur in revenues
associated with property taxes, state revenue, and housing market transactions.

Preparing the proposed budget for presentation takes several months of collaborative efforts with departments to understand their needs and objectives for the
remainder of this year and the next year. Often during this process, additional needs and saving opportunities arise especially as their historical spending trend
was reviewed. By using 10 years of empirical data of revenues and expenditures, a cross analysis was performed examining historical trends, initially by each
account for the entire city, then by division and lastly, by department. After the departments submitted their requested amount (needs) and justifications, the
analysis was performed again to compare the account, division, and department requests with the historical trends. The process enabled the Finance
Department to discuss with the departments certain notable trends for their division and citywide. Additionally, this process ensures that the savings which
may have been previously achieved across many departments directly or indirectly was not needlessly funded in the new budget and as such, could be
reallocated. In short, funds were reprioritized and any excess was squeezed out.




The City continues to impose a deep budget freeze. The Finance Department budget task force remains committed to finding cost saving opportunities and
evaluating cost avoidance plans. Once again, such strategies helped close the revenue/current expenditure gap for the 09-10 fiscal year and will continue to
strengthen the City’s financial position this fiscal year and into the next.

The Planning Director distributes the Capital Improvement Program forms and guidelines to department heads in early-November. Departments are required
to return their requests to the Planning Director within one month.

Traditionally, the budget “kick-off” meeting is held the first week in December. However, this year the “kick-off” meeting was held in mid-November. The Mayor
and Director of Finance distributed the budget calendar, forms, and instructions to City department heads and representatives of the City’s outside agencies
and authorities/commissions. An overview of economic conditions, trends and expectations was presented to provide a guideline for preparation of the next
fiscal year’s budget. Department heads were required to submit their budget to the Director of Finance no later than December 21.

Budget submissions are reviewed, and a meeting is held with each department head during January to discuss justification of the budget submitted and any
changes that need to be made. If necessary, additional discussions with department heads and outside agencies are scheduled throughout the month of
February. During the month of March, the Mayor and Director of Finance finalize the budget, which is presented to the City Council at its April meeting.
According to Danbury’s City Charter, the Mayor must present a budget to the Council no later than April 7, which allows the Mayor the option of submitting the
budget earlier than the April meeting.

During the month of April, the City Council reviews the Proposed Operating Budget. This budget is divided into four subdivisions – General Government I,
General Government II, Public Works, and Health & Housing, Public Safety and Social Services. Each is reviewed by a subcommittee composed of members
of the City Council. Public hearings are held so that the citizens of Danbury may ask questions and voice their opinion of the proposed budget. The last date
that the budget can be adopted is May 15. However, the City Council usually approves an Adopted Budget at its regularly scheduled May meeting (the first
Tuesday of the month). The Budget Ordinance and Tax Resolution are formalized. The Adopted Budget is printed and is ready for distribution and posting on
the City’s web site on July 1.

CITY OF DANBURY

FINANCIAL STRUCTURE AND BASIS OF ACCOUNTING

FINANCIAL STRUCTURE

The accounts of the City of Danbury are organized on a fund basis, each of which is considered a separate accounting entity. The activities of each fund
are accounted for with a distinct set of self-balancing accounts that includes expenditures, revenues, assets, liabilities and fund equity. Resources are
allocated to and accounted for in individual funds based on the purposes for which they are to be expended and to maintain control and accountability.

All of the funds of the City of Danbury are divided into three categories: governmental funds, proprietary funds and fiduciary funds.

Governmental Funds: The City of Danbury maintains 31 individual governmental funds. Information is presented separately in the governmental fund
balance sheet and in the governmental fund statement of revenues, expenditures and changes in fund balances for the General Fund which is considered
to be a major fund. Other funds considered to be Major Funds are Sewer, Water, and Internal Service. Non-major governmental funds are combined into a
single, aggregated presentation as other governmental funds. Such funds include the School Lunch Program Fund, the Community Development Block
Grant Fund, the WIC Grant Fund, the Continuing Education Fund, the Animal Control Fund, the School-Based Health Center Grant Fund, the Ambulance
Fund, the LOCIP Fund, Airport Projects Fund, State and Federal School Projects Fund, the Library Fund, the Railyard Parking Lease Fund, Open Space,
Magnet School Fund, Miscellaneous Special Revenue Fund, the Vision 21 and Vision 21–2 Bond Issues Fund, the City Projects Fund, the Danbury
Neighborhood Bond Fund, the Head Start Bond Fund, the Farioly Permanent Fund, BIIP, NSP Grant, ARRA, Public Safety Bond, Century 21 PI Fund,
Citworks/Library Reconstruction, and Special Litigation.

Governmental funds are used to finance the vast majority of the City’s activities. Governmental funds include the General Fund, the Special Revenue Fund
and Capital Projects Fund.

ƒ General Fund – The General Fund is the general operating fund of the City government. All unrestricted sources, except those required to be
accounted for in another fund, are included in this fund. General operating expenditures, fixed charges, principal and interest on long term debt,
and some capital improvements costs are paid from this fund.

ƒ Special Revenue Funds – The Special Revenue Funds are used to account for the proceeds of the 46 small grant programs that are either
required by law or administrative action to be accounted for in a separate fund. Special Revenue Funds appropriated in the budget include the
Ambulance Fund, the Animal Control Fund, and the Local Capital Improvement Program (LOCIP). Other special revenue funds maintained by the
City of Danbury are not subject to appropriation, and information on these funds is not included in this document, but is included in the City’s
Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR).




ƒ Capital Projects Fund – The Capital Projects Fund is used to account for resources related to the acquisition and/or
construction/renovation/significant repair of capital facilities.

Proprietary Funds: These funds are used to account for activities similar to those funds in the private sector where the determination of net income is
necessary or useful to sound financial administration. The City maintains two different types of proprietary funds, both of which are subject to budgetary
control and appropriation. The Enterprise types consist of the Water and Sewer Funds, which account for activities related to the provision of water
services and wastewater treatment. The Internal Service Fund accounts for employee benefits, liability insurance, worker’s compensation, heart and
hypertension claims, and retiree benefits.

Fiduciary Funds: Fiduciary funds are used to account for resources held for the benefit of parties outside the government. Fiduciary funds are not
reflected in the government-wide financial statement because the resources of those funds are not available to provide services to the City constituency.
The City has six pension funds trust funds, one private purpose fund and six agency funds. The accounting used for fiduciary funds is much like that used
for proprietary funds. The funds are not subject to budgetary appropriation.

ACCOUNTING AND BUDGETARY BASIS

The Annual Fiscal Year Adopted Budget and the Comprehensive Annual Financial Report (CAFR) strive to communicate to interested parties (the public) a
detailed summary of the financial health and an overview of the future plans of the City. At first glance, there may appear to be a slight disconnect between
the two reports. However, disparities between the GAAP basis of accounting and the basis of budgeting do often occur because regulations governing
budgeting (e.g., laws or local ordinances) differ from GAAP. Some of the more common differences between GAAP and the budgetary basis of budgeting
are as follows:

x Encumbered amounts are commonly treated as expenditures under the basis of budgeting, while encumbrances are never classified as
expenditures under the GAAP basis of accounting.

x Budgetary revenues and expenditures may include items classified as “other financing sources” and “other financing uses” under the GAAP basis
of accounting.

x The fund structure used in GAAP financial statements may differ from the fund structure used for budgetary purposes (e.g., debt service payments
may be accounted for in the general fund for budgetary purpose, but may be reported in a debt service fund in the GAAP financial statements).

x The government’s budget document may not include all of the component units and funds incorporated into the GAAP financial statements (e.g.,
Danbury Parking Authority, Richter Park Authority, Danbury Museum and Historical Society Authority and Tarrywile Park Authority included in the
GAAP financial statements may not be incorporated into the budget).
60


61

x Under the GAAP basis of accounting used in proprietary funds, the receipt of long term debt proceeds, capital outlays, and debt service principal
payments are not reported in operations, but allocations for depreciation and amortization expense are recorded. Often the opposite is true under the
basis of budgeting.

x Under GAAP basis of accounting, on-behalf revenues and expenditures must be reported. They are generally not included under the basis of
budgeting (e.g., payments by the state to a pension plan for the government’s employees).1

Basis of accounting refers to when revenues and expenditures or expenses are recognized in the accounts and reported in the financial statements. The City
of Danbury relies on two methods in its accounting and budgetary systems to account for revenues and expenditures.

Modified Accrual Basis of Accounting: Under the modified accrual basis of accounting, revenues are recognized when they are both measurable and
available to finance current operations. These revenue items consist primarily of property taxes, special assessments and interest on investments. Fines,
permits and charges for services are not susceptible to accrual as they are not measurable until the cash is received. Expenditures are generally recognized
under the modified accrual basis of accounting when the liability is incurred. Exceptions to this policy are: (1) principal and interest on long-term debt, which is
recognized when paid; and (2) compensated absences, claims and landfill closure costs, which are recognized when the obligations are expected to be
liquidated with expendable available financial resources.

Accrual Basis of Accounting: The accrual basis of accounting is used for pension funds, internal service funds and non-expendable trust funds with
revenues recorded when earned and expenses when incurred.

1
GFOA recommended practice on “Relationship Between Budgetary and Financial Statement Information” (1999)




The budgetary basis follows the modified accrual basis of accounting except:

Encumbrances are recognized as a valid and proper charge against a budget appropriation in the year in which the purchase order is issued, and
accordingly, encumbrances outstanding at year-end are reflected in budgetary reports as expenditures in the current year but are shown as reservation of
fund balance on a GAAP basis.

Water Fund Proprietary Accrual Yes
Sewer Fund Proprietary Accrual Yes
Ambulance Fund Governmental Modified Accrual No

As provided by Public Act 09-1, approximately $3.3 million as originally budgeted for Education expenditures and Education Cost Sharing grant revenues
were paid directly to the Board of Education and accounted for in a separate special revenue fund for FY 2009-2010 and FY 2010-2011. The funds were paid
as part of the Federal ARRA State Fiscal Stabilization Funds passed through to the State of Connecticut Board of Education. The original budget was not
revised by the Public Act. Although ARRA funds are no longer available, the State will be funding the entire $3,261,030 amount through Education Cost
Sharing. For illustrative purposes, ARRA funds have been included.

Revenue Overview

Property Taxes:
The principal source of revenue for the City of Danbury is local property taxes. Local taxes, which comprise 78.4% of the City’s revenue, are levied annually to
cover the operating expenses of City government. There are four factors that determine the level of taxes that must be raised each year to meet the needs of City
government.

Gross Expenditures – The size of the City’s operating budget is a key determinant of the amount of money that must be raised through taxes each year. Since
the City is required to operate with a balanced budget, when all other factors are equal, the larger the operating budget, the more money that must be raised
through taxation.

Other Revenue Sources – The City of Danbury also receives revenue from sources other than taxation. These revenue sources include intergovernmental
revenue, licenses and permits, charges for services, investment income, and fines and penalties. Stronger revenue collections from these sources can reduce
the amount of revenue that must be raised through taxation.

Grand List – The Grand List is the assessed value of all auto, real estate, and personal property. The Grand List, before adjusting for phase-in, for FY 2011-
2012 is $8,514,559,512, a slight decrease of $10,763,856 or 0.1% from the current year.




Tax Collection Rate – In the past, the budget assumed to collect 100% of the tax levy amount in the current year. The actual tax revenue has been
more than the budget in most years as a result of not specifically budgeting for other property tax revenues that occur during the year like
supplemental auto taxes and prior year collections. Such fiscally prudent practices have served the City well and will continue to keep us on sound
financial footing.

Historically, collections have been in excess of 98% of the current year levy. However, we are challenged by the recessionary impacts on our
collections levels, but we have been aggressively taking steps towards maintaining the budgeted tax revenues for this year and next. The following
initiatives to maximize property tax revenues have been taken: a new tax collection agency specializing in municipal tax collections has been rehired;
vehicles that are unregistered or have unpaid taxes are aggressively being pursued through a boot program; receivables are being evaluated for sale;
a mailing service will be assisting us in finding current billing addresses; and on-line and scheduled payments through Sallie Mae will be allowed and
encouraged.

Although we are optimistic about maintaining the collection levels of the past with our initiatives, the FY 2011-2012 Budget will have an uncollected tax
allowance of $1,000,000 to help offset the anticipated reduction of collections and losses on tax appeals.

Education spending excludes federal & state grants designated for specific programs.

Education - Revenues in this category are subsidies to local governments designed to offset the cost of education and are formula driven. They include
education equalization, transportation, special education and reimbursement for school construction projects. For FY 2011-2012, education revenues are
budgeted at $25,633,793, an increase of $371,454 or 1.5% from the FY 2010-2011 Budget.

Public Works – State revenues received for the Department of Public Works include grants for State Aid for Highways and State Road Maintenance.
These revenues are budgeted at $437,616, the same level as the current budget year.




Payment in Lieu of Taxes (PILOTS) – These payments represent a partial reimbursement for foregone property tax revenues from State owned
property and hospitals, tax relief for the elderly and tax exemptions for veterans. Also included is a reimbursement program for machinery and equipment
located in a manufacturing facility and grant proceeds from State agreements with gaming facilities located in Connecticut. Revenue from these sources
is budgeted at $5,298,345, a decrease of $1,454,382 or 22.9% from the FY 2010-2011 budget. This is mainly due to the Governor’s proposal to cut all
funding for the manufacturing machinery and equipment PILOT program.

Other – The City of Danbury receives other types of revenue that help fund various programs throughout the City. These include reimbursements for boat
registrations, and public safety programs. These revenues are budgeted at $1,273,033, an increase of $1,227,718 or 270.9%.

Fines, Penalties & Interest:


The City of Danbury derives revenue from parking violations, state court fines, and interest and lien fees on delinquent taxes.

Delinquent Taxes – Interest on delinquent taxes is set at the rate of 18% per annum and is mandated by State legislation. Penalty fees for late
payment are also mandated by State legislation. Penalty charges include lien fees, warrant fees, and returned check charges. Revenue in this
category is budgeted at $1,150,000, an increase of $50,000 or 4.5% from 2010-2011.

Public Safety – The Police Department issues parking violations throughout the City, excluding those issued by the Parking Authority. The
Police also issues parking violations during snow emergencies and other similar situations. The City has recently contracted with a collection
agency to pursue violations receivable accounts. Additionally, the City receives revenue from the State of Connecticut for other traffic violations.
Included in this category are false alarm fines. Total revenue for FY 2011-2012 is budgeted at $307,000, an increase of $17,000 or 5.9%.

Investment Income:
Investment income is derived through the investment of cash on a short-term basis in highly liquid investments to meet the cash flow needs of the
City. The FY 2011-2012 Budget is projecting continued low rates of return on certificates of deposit and money market investments. Investment
income has been reduced significantly as interest rates dropped to historic lows. Also, as the capital projects are completed, less cash is available to
invest, further reducing our income from investments.

INTRODUCTION

The Capital Budget is the City’s plan of capital projects and the means of financing them for a given fiscal year. The Planning Commission adopts a six-year
capital improvement program and the City Council approves authorization for the first year of the program. The following section contains a summary of the
City’s Capital Budget and includes an explanation of the capital budget process, its relationship to the operating budget, and a brief description of the
approved capital projects for 2011-12. This section also contains information on capital budget financing and debt administration in the City.

Capital Budget Overview

Capital improvement programming and budgeting involves the development of a long-term plan for capital expenditures of the City. Capital expenditures
include costs for buildings, land, major maintenance items, equipment, and other commodities that are of significant value and have a useful life of many
years.

The FY 11-12 Proposed Capital Budget Plan provides for making investments in schools, public safety, and in the City’s infrastructure in addition to funding
mandated projects such as the 2012 Property Revaluation and the replacement of the underground storage tanks. The FY 11-12 Proposed Capital Budget
includes funding for the following: Schools – for energy efficiency projects, such as: replacement of boilers, windows and possible lighting upgrades in
various buildings (Danbury HS, Broadview, Stadley Rough, King Street, etc.), and repair/waterproof interior masonry at Alternative School; Public Safety –
although slightly reduced, funds have been provided for the Police Department for the annual Patrol/Detective Vehicle Replacement Program while the Fire
Department will continue to receive funding for their Air Pac Replacement Program and to fund the lease of the two pumpers purchased last year; Public
Buildings – replacement of the artificial turf at DHS Crotty Stadium, replacement of underground storage tanks as required by EPA at the Airport, Fire HQ,
and City Hall, and new septic installation at the Danbury Airport; Infrastructure – paving, drainage, road improvement, highway equipment, airport taxiway
rehabilitation, bridge improvements, Long Ridge Road Bridge Replacement and Germanton Road/Hospital Avenue intersection improvements; and General
Government – funding for the mandated 2012 Property Revaluation. The Capital Budget includes a plan to implement a Constituent Relationship
Management (CRM) System, which will provide for significant upgrades to the City’s technology infrastructure, including the replacement of core business
software systems and related equipment. However, these costs will be managed within the existing budget (internalized) by utilizing the current funding for
our existing outdated hardware and software systems over the next several years via lease/license agreements. By implementing a CRM system, cost
savings and cost avoidance will be immediately realized by significantly improving efficiency and effectiveness via paperless and electronic work flow
processes and better internal/external (with the public) communication with the central data warehouse concept.

The total FY 11-12 Proposed Capital Budget is $8,877,967 to be funded as follows: General Fund ($1,100,000), Borrowing – Bonds/BANS ($3,000,000),
Federal/State grants ($4,777,967), and LoCIP ($500,000).

The City’s Capital Improvement Program (CIP) lists proposed capital items to be undertaken over a six-year period, beginning with the ensuing fiscal year,
and projecting expenditures for the following five years. Based on the CIP, summaries of capital activity can be prepared as well as summaries of future
financial requirements, including bonds to be issued, grants to be secured, and general operating funds to be committed.
282
283

The annual Capital Budget is based on the CIP, though it may vary from the actual amount programmed in response to unanticipated revenue gains or
losses. In either case, the CIP must be updated after the adoption of the Capital Budget to (1) make necessary adjustments in future programs resulting
from changes in the current amount funded, and (2) add a year of programming to replace the current fiscal year.

The distinction between capital and operating items are determined by two criteria - cost and frequency. The minimum for any one item to be included on
the CIP is set at $25,000. In addition, items that occur every year (e.g. salaries, office supplies), regardless of cost, are not included.

Capital Budget Process

November – During the month of November, the Director of Planning distributes Capital Budget forms and guidelines to City departments and authorities.

December – January – During the month of December, the capital budget requests are returned to the Director of Planning. Departments are required to
prioritize the projects in their requests through the use of a numbering system. The highest priority project is given a number one (1). In addition, projects
may be given additional priority by ranking them as either “urgent” or “necessary”. Projects identified as “urgent” signifies that from a department’s
perspective, operations may be impacted if not executed. Projects identified as “necessary” indicates that the project should be addressed at some point
during the term of the capital improvement plan. The Planning Director meets with various City departments to review their requests and priorities. The
Planning Director also meets with the Mayor and the Finance Director to review budget submissions. The Planning Director submits a proposed CIP to the
Planning Commission for its consideration.

February – On or before February 15th, the Planning Commission forwards its recommended CIP to the Mayor.

March - The Mayor reviews the recommended CIP. During this phase, the Mayor may reduce or eliminate any department requests.

On or before April 7th – The Mayor transmits his recommended Capital Budget to the City Council.

April – The City Council may approve, reject or reduce any item in the Capital Budget by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of all the members of the City
Council. Not later than May 1st, the City Council shall hold one or more public hearings, at which any taxpayer may have an opportunity to be heard
regarding appropriations for the ensuing fiscal year.

May - Not later than May 15th, the City Council shall adopt the Capital Budget.
CAPITAL BUDGET FINANCING

Bonding
Section 7-10 of the Danbury City Charter gives the City Council the power to authorize indebtedness through the issuance of bonds or notes by an
affirmative vote of at least two-thirds of the entire membership of the Council. Bonds shall not be issued for terms longer than the estimated life of the
improvement for which they are issued, and in no event, for a term longer than twenty years.

Financing for these projects will include the use of Bond Anticipation Notes (BANS) and General Obligation Bonds. BANS will be used during the course
of construction to provide the necessary cash to complete the projects. Funding for BAN interest is included in the referendum and is not paid out of the
General Fund. Upon project completion, the BANS are permanently financed and long-term debt service is included in the General Fund budget. This
financing strategy allows for better planning and stabilization of annual debt service costs. A combination of 10- and 20-year bonds is used to ensure
that debt does not exceed the useful life of the improvement.

Bond Anticipation Notes


The capital budget may require financing through Bond Anticipation Notes. Notes are typically used to fund small, low cost projects that can be
completed within 18-24 months. The BANS are never permanently financed and are paid down each year in the General Fund. Short-term interest on
the BANS is included in the General Fund. This financing strategy allows for the completion of smaller projects without contributing to long-term debt
service costs.

Local Capital Improvement Program (LOCIP)


The State of Connecticut’s LOCIP program provides financial assistance to municipalities for eligible projects in the form of entitlement grants funded
with State general obligation bonds. Eligible projects include road and sidewalk repairs, sewer and water projects, renovations to public buildings,
bridges, dams, solid waste facilities and public housing, public park improvements, emergency communications systems, and the purchase of thermal
imaging systems and defibrillators. The City of Danbury incorporates LOCIP funding into its Capital Budget to fund eligible projects. The use of LOCIP
funds reduces the City’s reliance on short and long-term debt.

Community Development Block Grant Funds (CDBG)


Each year the City of Danbury receives an entitlement grant from the CDBG program financed through the Federal Department of Housing and Urban
Development. A portion of these funds can be used for public improvement projects that are either located in low to moderate-income neighborhoods or
serve low to moderate-income persons. City projects that meet either of these criteria are included in the Capital Budget and reduce the City’s reliance
on short and long-term debt.

284
285

CITY INDEBTEDNESS AND DEBT LIMITS

Under Connecticut General Statutes, municipalities shall not incur indebtedness through the issuance of bonds that will cause aggregate indebtedness by
class to exceed the following:

- General Purposes – 2.25 times annual receipts from taxation


- School Purposes – 4.5 times annual receipts from taxation
- Sewer Purposes – 3.75 times annual receipts from taxation
- Urban Renewal Purposes – 3.25 times annual receipts from taxation
- Unfunded Pension Liabilities – 3.0 times annual receipts from taxation

In no case, however, shall the total indebtedness exceed seven times the base.

The following schedule shows the computation of the statutory debt limit of the City of Danbury and the debt-incurring margin as of March 31, 2011.
